Thanks for you suggestions.
I tried. I lookede into a XMMS config file. I saw nothing related to arts plugin.
I could find nothing about how to enable the arts plugin.
How do I stop the arts deamon ?
Jonathon's questions also lead to the conclusion that that something like a deamon has stopped working. It is whatever is necessary to handle streams and mp3's etc. So perhaps the easiest thing to to is to reinstall such. But what should I reinstall (ie what SuSe packages) ?

Hmmm. XMMS is no longer working. It races through the file and there is no sound. Sound effects with KDE are normal.

the wrong speed.
Now there is a wierd problem. The "welcome" plays for only

A video will
play for a frame or two and then stop - no sound. The aRTs
control center - sound - server is set on at startup as

Realplayer is set to use native sound driver - as always.
Trying the other two sound driver preference options does
allow RP8 to
play video or audio but there is no audio output.
I had a look at the real.com community support (UNIX) site
and tried the
various posted suggestions that looks relevant but there has
been no fix.
I uninstalled and reinstalled RP8.
Once it worked almost correctly with only poor sound quality
the sound quality settings were the usual (16 bit etc.)
But it did no last. Again there is no sound as described
fresh unistall, restart, install of RP8 did not help.
The only recent change was the installation of Mozilla 1.1

I suspect that the problem may be caused by a SuSe 8.0
or such but I do not know what to look for and I do not want
